CIVIL DEFENSE REPOET 



To the People of Pelham: 

Defense Civil Preparedness Agency, this is the new name of Civil 
Defense. This change came about last May, when the Office of Civil 
Defense within the Department of the Army was disestablished and its 
functions transferred to the New Defense Agency. 

These changes are in keeping with the President's policy of making 
the Federal Government more responsive to the needs of State and Local 
Governments. 

The new Agency will provide Preparedness Assistance Planning in 
all areas of Civil Defense and Natural Disasters. The goals of the DCPA 
are to provide an effective National Civil Defense program and planning 
guidance to State and Local governments in their achievment of total 
Disaster Preparedness. 

During 1972, the Rescue Truck responded to (4) emergencies; (2) 
calls were for the rescue of persons, (l) call for a car accident, and (l) 
call to assist at a fire. We were also called to MerrimcL(':kj N. H. to assist 
at a drowning, with our portable lights and rescue sled. 

In March we conducted an Advanced Emergency Operations Training 
Course; its purpose being to familiarize Heads of Departments and support 
personnel with the functions of an Einergency Operations Center, and the 
merits of Advanced Planning. 

The following completed the course and were awarded certificates 
from University of New Hampshire: 



Herbert H. At wood, Sr. 
Arnold V. Balcom 
Wayne A. Bariteau 
James V. Berry 
Ralph S. Boutwell 
Donald E. Crossley 
Mrs. Faye Emerson 
James J. Pent on 
A. Russell Harris 
Alton M. Hodgman 
Mitchell Kopacz 
Edmund Lapoint 



George A. Maiocchi 
Richard C. Mansfield 
Hubert L. Mason 
Leonard J. McGee 
Mrs. Cecile A. Nantel 
Maurice E. Nantel 
Stuart Nash 
John Newcomb 
Thomas Stack, Dr. 
Mrs. Stephanie Tremblay 
A. A, Vautier 
Mrs. Charlotte Vautier 



This year we have added a gasoline powered Rescue Saw, with acces- 
sories and a Rescue Sled to our inventory of rescue equipment. 

The Border Riders, Snow Mobile Club of Pelham, have offered to equip 
the s3ed with necessary emergency gear, and to form a team to man it. 
I wish to express my thanks to the group for this gesture. 



27 



Finally, I wish to extend my sincere thanks to all Department 
Heads for their earnest cooperation and to all who contributed to our 
Civil Defense Program. 

Re spect fully submitt ed , 



Maurice E. Nantel, Director 
John E. Newcomb, Deputy Director 



BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT REPORT 

The purpose of the Board of ?Adjustment is to rectify slight inade- 
quacies in its zoning ordinances through a variance. During 1972, fifty- 
six cases were heard. Of these, thirty-eight variances were granted, 
fifteen were denied, and two had no decision. One was withdrawn. A 
total of $540.00 was turned over to the treasurer and went into the gen- 
eral fund. 

The Board of Adjustment meets to hear cases on the second Monday 
of each month. Persons wishing to present an appeal should have the request 
into the office eleven days before the second Monday so that the case can 
be posted the required ten days before the hearing.

FIRE DEPARTMENT 



REPORT OF THE FOREST FIRE WARDEN AND DISTRICT CHIEF 



In New Hampshire, forest fire control is a cooperative State-Town 
program. The Town Forest Fire Warden, appointed by the Director, Division 
of Resources Development upon recommendation of the Selectmen'and the 
State's District Forest Fire Chief is responsible for fire suppression 
and other related duties. The State shares equally with the town in the 
cost of most forest fires, except illegal and careless fires, which are 
charged to the responsible party. The State further provides fire de- 
tection services, prevention program, fire training for town wardens and 
crews, and backup equipment for fire suppression. 

By authority of the State, the Town Forest Fire Warden controls all 
outside burning in his town except backyard cooking fires. Any ^person 
wishing to kindle a fire when the ground is not covered with snow must 
obtain a fire permit, free of cost, from the Town Forest Fire Warden. 
No permits will be issued for fires between 9:00 A.M. and 5tOO P.M. unless 
it is raining, except for commercial purposes. 

Please be careful when using fire, remember it can be an extremely 
useful tool when under control but once allowed to run wild it can become 
a disastrous and devastating force. Only you can prevent a forest fire. 



Number of fires reported and acres burned - 1972 season:

LIBEU\RY REPORT 



The past year has been one of continuing progress in all areas of 
library service. Librarian, Ann Atkins and staff members Pearl Atwood, 
Eleanor Burns and Tony Chapman are to be commended for their effor-ts in 
providing this service. We would also like to take this opportunity to 
extend our deepest appreciation to our Book Committee for their many hours 
of hard work and excellent selections; to' Mrs. Jane Clark of Nashua who 
thrilled so many children with her story-telling and to Mr. Bill Atwood, 
who is always available when we need a helping hand. 

Lucille Craven managed to gather together all town reports from 
1875 through 1971. We have had these bound into several volumnes and 
they are now available in the reference room. 

Magazine selections have been increased and the record collection 
has been increased substantially in recent months. 

Phase I of the renovation plan has been completed. The new office, 
lavatory and reference room has given us more efficient utilization of 
available space and has added 20^ more space for the public's use. 

A new catalogue card file has been purchased. This means we now 
have separate files for adults and children. Magazine racks have also 
been added to the children's section. Four new tables with portable 
carrels now make studying in the reference and memorial rooms more 
meaningful. 

Lights have been installed to illuminate the front entrance and walk 
of the library and in the Fall shrubs were planted as a beginning to our 
beautifi cation program. 

Since the Fall, the library has been open on Friday mornings in 
an effort to make our services available to more residents. 

During the year, 532 new borrowers cards were issued and circulation 
increased more than 15^. 

Programming has continued to expand. Twelve story hours were held 
with attendance going as high as 4o children. We extend a sincere thank 

you to Jane Clark, Ann Atkins, Pearl Atwood and Rosie Ebacher who worked 
together to make these programs possible. In October, 77 people gathered 
to hear Mrs. Judith Kimball of the N. H. State Library, talk about the 
history of VJitchcraft and its current interest. In June, "The Little 
Red Wagon" from U. N. H. 's Theatre Resources for Youth, presented an out- 
door performance of puppets and story theatre. Over 100 children attended 
this event. We hope to be able to present more such programs for both 
adults and children in the future. 



33 



In May, Sandra Corbin and Ann Atkins attended the N. H. Library 
Council's annual conference. They attended meetings on children's pro- 
gramming, copyrighting and censorship. 

In the Fall, Doris Parker attended the N. H. Library Trustees con- 
ference. This program included a panel discussion on the theme of explor- 
ing possible areas of cooperation and coordination of public and school 
library service for pre=school, in-school and post-school patrons. State 
library officials participated in this panel and the summation was given 
by Newell J. Paire, Commissioner, State Department of Education. 

In May the library had the privilege of hosting the State Book 
Review Meeting. 

Many exhibits have brightened our display case such as: antique post 
cards, valentines, dolls, Girl Scout projects, and objet d'art from the 
Philippines. The display case is available to any Pelham resident wishing 
to display their art, craft or hobby. 

In closing may we, the trustees and staff, extend an invitation to 
all residents to come in and brov/se. We would enjoy showing you about 
and helping you with your selections. 

Respectfully submitted.

NASHUA REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION 



The Nashua Regional Planning Commission now consists of 12 active 
members; Amherst, Brookline, Hollis, Hudson, Litchfield, Lyndeborough, 
Merrimack, Milford, Mount Vernon, Nashua, Pelham and Wilton, 

The Commission has been currently active in the following programs: 

1. Advisory assistance to local planning board and 
boards of selectmen. 

2. Assessment of the impact of future growth on 
the region. 

3. Preparation of a regional land use plan. 

4. Analysis of regional housing problems. 

5. Implementation of a regional solid waste 
management plan. 

6. Preparation of a regional waste water treatment 
and water supply plan. 

7. Coordination of federal grants-in-aid expenditures 
in the region. 

8. Metropolitan transportation planning. 

9» Emergency medical services planning. 

Technical experts on the Commission's staff have met on several oc- 
casions with Pelham Town Officials to provide advice and suggestions at 
no cost to the Town in the field of solid waste disposal, wetland zoning and 
technical review of various ideas and proposals in these areas. Perhaps 
most important of all the regional commission provides a forum at which 
problems common to the member towns and cities are discussed and possible 
solutions exchanged. This has been especially true in the field of solid 
waste disposal where many alternative solutions have been presented to the 
selectmen for their consideration. The Commission will continue to work 
towards solutions to problems common to its members providing a means of 
a professional investigation at a cost far lower than that possible if each 
member were to work independently.

POLICE DEPARTMENT 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

I hereby submit my report of the Pelham Police Department for the 
year beginning, January 1, 1972 and ending December 31, 1972. 

The number of crimes committed and the number of complaints and 
reports received by the Police Department have increased considerably this 
year, which is normal due to the rapid growth of our town. 

This year the Highway Safety Committee had discussed the possibility 
of having a Safety Officer, funded by the federal government. The committee 
came about this decision after a petition, signed by numerous residents, 
had been presented to the Board of Selectmen, the School Board and the 
Police department. The petition focused on the need for a safety program 
in areas of pedestrian, bicycle, swimming and ice related activities 
Under the Highway Safety Program, the Officer would attend a special school 
for three weeks. He would also be provided with a car which would be 
fully equipped. It would be used primarily for accidents and highway 
safety related instructions. Both the officer and the vehicle would be 
funded by the government on a 50 percent basis. After much discussion with 
the budget committee over this, it was brought up that the School depart- 
ment had already asked for funds to incorporate a safety program in the 
school system. Some of the Budget committee members felt that this 
would be a duplication You must be aware, however, that the authority 
that the School department has outside of the school on such a program is 
limited. I felt with a new high school coming we should have a man that 
could go into the schools and coordinate safety programs on monitoring buses, 
at bus stops, bicycle and pedestrian safety. He could work with students 
in other areas as well. I felt we should start such a program now before 
we have the high school and go into it gradually. I did go along with 
the budget committee to set this aside this year, and to give it more study 
for presentation next year. 

Each year I try to take advantage of Federal funds. This past year 
we received our police radar unit under these funds, which is a ti-product 
of the highway Safety Agency. It has been very useful. 

During this past year we have run into drug problems . ¥e have con- 
ducted raids which have all proven fruitful. We will keep on top of this 
problem as best we can. We are experiencing more of this as time goes on. 
I think we can contribute some of this to the fact that urban renewal 
projects etc., are pushing people out of the cities into our rural communities, 



38 



The department would like to thank the townspeople for their appro- 
priation for the new facilities which we have, which have proven bene- 
ficial. All one has to do is look around to the neighboring towns and 
speak with the people who have experienced working with these new type 
municipal buildings, town police and fire stations, and see what we got 
for our money. All you have to do is ride five miles from here and see 
a building that cost almost twice as much as our building, w^th no 
comparison at all. I would like to thank the Board of Selectmen for their 
efforts in seeing these facilities completed. The building has been approved 
by the townspeople for the last couple of years, but was hampered with con- 
siderable delays and stalling. It is now completed - this is what we can do 
with cooperation. I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to 
those men who gave their time and effort in the early stages of construction. 

Special thanks is due Captain Prank Foisie, a member of the Building 
committee, who donated his time freely in the capacity of clerk of the 
works. The building committee is also to be commended for their design and 
planning of the Police station. 

There has been considerable criticism about the previous Board of 
Selectmen retaining one cruiser for a spare, which I wholeheartedly agreed 
with. We need the third cruiser. Very often we need one car at the scene 
while the other is making a "run" to the hospital, while another must stand 
by. Also, the drivers that answer these ambulance calls are from Lowell, 
Nashua and Salem; they don't know Bridge Street from Jericho Road or 
Jeremy Hill Road or anywhere elee. They don't know one street from the 
other. We have to have someone go to the town line, from whichever direction 
they are coming from, to escort them to the scene. We can't have one car, 
no matter what circumstance, doing two things at once. It is your family and 
lives we are protecting, so you make the decision. I hope you never need 
it. This third vehicle has been used quite a few times during the year for 
just such cases. The small minority that is opposed to it feel that the 
Chief is using it, that it is his car. Well, I assuieyou I am not using it for 
my car. I use my own personal car for many calls which persons are not 
aware of. I believe this other cruiser is more beneficial at our station, 
sitting in our garage, available should an emergency arise when someone's life 
is at stake, than sitting down at the junk yard for the few hundred dollars 
that it cost. 

I would like to mention the Civil Defense Rescue truck which we now 
have stored in the station's apparatus room. For years, this truck has set 
outside in the weather and at times was frozen with snow and ice, and un- 
available to us for use. Since it has been at our present station it has 
proven to be very valuable. It has been used at accidents and fires. It 
is equipped with flood-light type lights, power saws, a resuscitator, and 
a portapower which can be put to use if a person is trapped. I would like 
to commend the Civil Defense director and his department for this fine 
vehicle that we have. 



39 



I would like to thank Mr. Chester Milnes for his generous contri- 
butions to my department during this past year. Earlier in the year we 
were able to purchase a riot gun for one of our cruisers. More recently 
Mr. Milnes made it possible for us to purchase the State of New Hampshire 
flag and the American flag. These flags flank the sides of the Town's 
original charter which was recently renovated and framed ajid placed in 
our foyer of the new station. 

I would also like to extend my thank you to Mrs. Richard (Harriet) 
Mansfield, who answered and dispatched for the police department for the 
past ten years at a token payment. Although we had 24 hour dispatching, 
going into four years now, Mrs. Mansfield aided the department during 
emergencies, up until our moving into our present station. 

I would like to thank the Selectmen and other town departments and 
townspeople for their continued support and cooperation this past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ralph S. Bout well 
Chief of Police

STREET LIGHTING COMMITTEE 

The Street Lighting Committee, since being sanctioned by the Tov/n 
Meeting of 1970 has worked each year to improve the lighting of Pelham. 

The first year, we improved the quality of lighting by removing 41 
incandescent lights and installing mercury vapor lights in their place. 
In addition, we installed l6 new mercury vapor lights at locations where 
there was a heavy concentration of traffic. 

The second year, we added 43 new lights. The locations for these 
lights were decided on the basis of major intersections and heavily 
traveled areas. 

Thisi* year, we are proposing 65 new lights. These locations were 
decided on the basis of intersections, dangerous curves, places where 
accidents have happened, places where people are walking, and heavily 
traveled areas. 

Our policy in the past and will be in the future is to decide 
locations on the basis of priority of importance. The lights proposed 
in group 1 will take priority over lights proposed in group 11. The 
lights proposed in group 11 will take priority over lights proposed in 
group 111.

Instructors: Ingrid Windt, Doris Levesque, Judith Reed cS: Robert, 

' ----- Consx-antm 

Appreciated Thanks to: Sandra Stork, Bertha Doherty, Lois Ives, 

Jackie Batchelder and Ed Otto 

Babe Ruth Team: The Pelham Orioles successfully represented the town 
of Pelham in the Nashua Babe Ruth League. Fifteen boys, ranging in 
age from 13 to 15 years old, -.vere able to participate in this years 
program. The recreation commission purchased equipment for the team 

that amounted to $165.00. 

Projection : There is an increasing need for a baseball program for boys 
13 tc 15 years old. It has become imperative that Pelham begin its own 
league since the Nashua league is becoming crov/ded and in the very near 
future, very possibly this year, will ask the Pelham. Team to withdraw 
frcxn the league. Therefore, with the support of the Little League organ- 
ization, zhe recreation commission is asking for $300 to equip four teamiS 
in a Pelham League. 

Little League: The Pelham Little League received equipment from the 

recreation comjnission this past year. The commission purchased the 
equijment and the equipment remains property of the town. Equip- 
ment Purchased: shirts, hats, uniforms, supporters, baseballs, 
catchers' m.asks, catchers' gloves, chest protectors, shin guards, 
scorebooks, bases, pitchers' rubber, umpire score keepers, 40 batting 
helmets, 6 aluminum bats, 6 plastic bats, and 12 catchers' helmets. 






'ection : Little League is rapidly becoming self-supporting. This 
coming year they have requested $400 worth of equipoient from the recrea- 
tion commission 

Softball Programs: With over 250 participants in the four softball divi- 
sions, it is evident that softball is one of the town's favorite pro- 
grams. Because of legal reasons the town assumed total responsibil- 
ity for equipment for the teams for the first time. In equipping the 
four divisions - Little Girls' League, Teenage League (Girls) , 
Womens' Slo- Pitch League, and the Men's Slo-Pitch League - the comm- 
ission expended $700. 

Projection : Softball is rapidly becoming one of the most successful re- 
creaLion past times in all areas of the country; FeZ-.am is no exception. 

It would be worthwhile to consider the possibilities of expanding each of 

the divisions this year. However, any expansion is limited due to inade- 



47 



quate field space, this year the running expense of the softball progsamb 
will be $795. Once sufficient equipment has been purchased by the Town, 
it is estimated that the running expenses of the softball program can be 
cut by one-third. 

Swimming Program: Harris Pond was the site of our 1972 Red 'Cross Swimming ' 
Program. With 350 children registered, 273 boys and girls participat- 
ed. For the first time since the inception of the program the weather 
was constantly inclement. Senior Life Saving Certificates were earned 
by Debra Kopacz, Gail Kennedy, Diane St. Onge, and Peter Psareas. 
With the number of privately owned swimming areas in town plus the 
rising numbers of private pools, the swimming program is one of the 
most important programs the town has to offer. The total cost of 
this program for 1972 was $995 with $22 being turned to the general 
fund from the sale of floatation devices. 

Projection ; The commission is asking for $1045 to continue offering this 
program. 

Summer Playground Program: The 1972 playground program was the most suc- 
cessful in recent years. With a daily attendance averaging over 90 
youngsters, the total number of children participating for the 6 weeks 
program was well over 2,600. The cost of this program, which offered 
arts, crafts, organized games, contests, special events, and unstruc- 
tured recreational activities, was $1CHX). 

Projection : The 1973 program will hopefully be moved back to the Sherburne 
School which possesses better facilities for the age groups involved. The 
cost of the program will be $1,640 for staff, supplies, equipment, and spec- 
ial events. With increasing traffic safety problems in town it becomes ap- 
parent that the summer playground program offers a safe recreational alter- 
native to the parents and children of the town. 

Womens' Exercise Program: The instructional cost of this program was $40 
for an eight week program. The number of participants varied greatly 
because of the holiday season. The average participation per class 

was 30 adults. 

Projection : In 1973 the recreation commission would like to offer this 
program twice during the year. Both sessions would cost $50 each for the 
instruction over a ten week period. 

Adult Art and Crafts Program: A crafts program for adults was offered this 
past fall with 28 women taking part. The program was well received 
and many complimentary letters were received. The program was offered 
for eight weeks and attention was given to liquid embroidery, bow 
creation, and glass staining. The cost of this program was $270. 

Projection ; The commission would like to offer this type of program two 
to three times per year. The cost would be $250 per session. 

Open Gym Program; Off to an uncertain stai^: due to a question of volunteer 
or paid supervision, the program is just now coming into ots own with 
paid supervision. The purpose of the program is to offer an unstruc- 
tured recreational evening to the youth of the town. Recreational 



48 



events enjoyed would include floor hockey, basketball, volleyball and 
gymnastics. Ideally this program would be offered once a week for 24 
weeks during the winter season costing the town $34^ for supervision and 
equipment . 

Special Events: The recreation commission is asking for $500 for what it 
calls special events. Special events in the past have included the 
Pelham Partners' fun nights, the Halloween party this past year that 
had over 250 participating, the Christmas Poster Painting Contest 
and Punt, pass and kick contests. 

Fly Tying and Tennis Programs: These are new programs projected for 1973* 
It is hoped by the commissinn that these programs will be enjoyed by 
many. The fly tying program is now iinder way meeting Tuesday even- 
ings in the old Fire Station. The tennis program is projected to 
begin i n the spring at Camp Alexander on Saturdays. 



REPORT FROM THE PELHAM YOUTH CENTER 

With the establishment of a Board of Directors in the month of May 
and the hiring of a Director in the month of June, the Pelham Youth Center 
"officially began its program on July first, 1972. 

Working with a total budget of $8600.00 for the fiscal year of 1972, 
the Pelham Youth Center reports its revenues and expenditures: 

Expenditures: Program $2447-43 Revenue: 

Office 150.17 For 6 months operation 

Salary 3573.00 $2588.50 

Since July 1st, the Pelham Wouth Center has been conducting a var- 
iety of programs designed to offer social, recreational and educational 
activities for the youth in Pelham. 

In the months of July and August the formation of a Drop In Center 
as well as starting a trend of offering programs such as dances and 
Coffeehouses every other week were the first steps taken toward developing 
the total program. 

In September, the Pelham Youth Center in conjunction with other 
town organizations became a part of Old Home Day, with the P Y C float 
taking second prize and the outside "Block Dance" concluding the day's ac- 
tivity. 

For the rest of September the Drop In Center program was continued 
as well as offering two Coffeehouses and one film to finish off the month. 



49 



In the month of October, the P Y C while continuing the regular 
programing produced a "Music Festivial". This was the first time this 
type of programming was ever tried in Pelham. With over 500 young 
people attending, this program went on with out one incident and nothing 
but good reports from all the groups involvedin making this a success. 

In the months of November and December, the Pelham Youth Center of- 
fered a dance or simular function each and every week. Also along with 
the Drop In Center, film presentation have been offered and well received. 

In these times of concern and uncertainty about the value of 
"youth organizations and programs" and the Pelham Youth Center has cer- 
tainly not been an exception, But if one could measure one of the 
"successes" of this program, it would have to be the number of young 
people who are attending the functions offered by the Pelham Youth Cen- 
ter. At the dances and Coffeehouses which have been run in the past 
six months, an average of 100 to 150 young people attend, the Drop In 
Center services on the average of 25 to 35 people per night. Both the 
block dance and the music festival serviced more than 500 young people. 

In its short six months of operation, the Pelham Youth Center has 
fulfilled some of the many needs of the young people in the town of 
Pelham and with the support of the community can con tinue with this 
much needed and used program.

PLANNING BOARD REPORT 



This past year has been one of the most productive in the history 
of the Pelham Planning Board. The subdivision regulations were amended in 
several respects. Each amendment was intended to place the cost of land 
development on the developer, rather than the Town. For example, a fee system 
was adopted which should finance the cost of operating the Planning Board. 

Early in the year the Planning Board drafted and adopted a road 
completion Performance Bond Agreement, which for the first time guarantees 
fully the completion of subdivision streets. Further, the Board adopted 
realistic bonding figures with a built in inflation factor. These figures 
will be updated annually. 

In the Spring the Planning Board adopted an engineer-prepared 85-point 
checklist, which will be used by the Planning Board to see that developers 
have fully complied with the subdivision regulations. 

During the Summer the Planning Board prepared and adopted over a dozen 
forms, many of which were recommended by the Office of State Planning. 
These forms will facilitate, expedite and improve the subdivision process 
from both the developer's and the Town's point of view. 

In the Fall, the Board drafted and recommended the adoption of safety 
bylaws requiring the fencing of swimming pools and limiting the height of 
buildings. These provisions not only improved the safety of our children, 
our future apartment dwellers and our firemen, they also served to control 
the growth of our Town and to save the Town the many costs that result from 
uncontrolled growth. 

Another measure drafted and supported by the Planning Board involved 
the closing of nearly a dozen abandoned streets. The reconstruction of 
these streets to present standards would have cost over a half a million 
dollars and would have been necessary had developers built developments on 
them. The safety bylaws and the street closings all passed at the Special 
Town Meeting recommended by the Planning Board in the Fall. 

It should be noted that every one of the above projects had the backing 
of every Planning Board Member. 

Your Planning Board feels that 1972 was a turning point for Pelham. 
A ten year period of uncontrolled growth ended. A period of moderate controlled 
growth is about to begin. As evidence of this turning point, we need 



51 



mention that only one subdivision involving a new street was approved by 
the Planning Board and only one lot on that street was given final ap- 
proval. When completed that new street will only have four homes on it. 

During 1973 we plan to implement new projects and procedures. For 
example, we plan to present a new Building Code to the voters in June. 
We also plan to reprint the amended subdivision regulations and Zoning 
ordinance. Copies will be sold to the public. The fees should more than 
offset the printing costs. 

In the coming year we will retain a civil engineering firm on a 
consulting basis to review all major subdivisions. The cost will be borne by 
fees collected from the developer. No longer will improperly designed 
street systems be abandoned to the Town. 

Another project will involve the indexing of the hundreds of sub- 
division plans which the Planning Board has been collecting since 1956. At 
present there is no index and no way to locate existing plans. 

You may note that the Planning Board's requested appropriation is 
more than last year's appropriation. It is expected that fees from developers 
will cover most of the increase. But, even if that were not so, the many 
benefits to be derived from proper planning would warrant the increase. 
This is undoubtedly why this appropriation has the Budget Committee's approval. 

Often reports of this nature end with a plea for financial support. 
Due to our new fee system, no plea of that nature is required. However, 
another type plea is very much in order. Your Planning Board is made up of 
individuals with varying backgrounds — the President of the Pelham Historical 
Society; a lawyer; an urban planner from M.I.T.; the owner of a landscaping 
business; a bank Vice-president, and a land developer "and heavy equipment 
company owner. More than half of the members of the Planning Board have lived 
in Pelham more than 30 years. Others are of more recent vintage. Notwith- 
standing our varying backgrounds, we have shown that we are of a single mind 
when it comes to uur sincere concern for Pelham and our strong desire for 
proper planning. 

We believe that through our accomplishments this past year, we have 
earned the right to ask for your support for the projects and changes which we 
have proposed and for those which we plan to propose. Most of our proposals 
can only be implemented by your vote. In asking for your support, we ask 
only that you vote as your conscience dictates. Far too often in the past 
too many people have voted for or against a proposal solely because the 
proposal was good or bad for their own vested financial interests or the 
vested financial interests of their "friends." The best interests of Pelham 
were often ignored. 



52 



This type of voting has resulted in financial success for a handful 
of people and financial disaster for Pelham. 

It is time for the unvested interests of Pelha, the vast majority 
of the People, to make their voices heard by insisting on proper planning 
and progressive zoning and building laws that will promote the interests 
of all of us, and our chilcren, not just the vested financial interests 
of the very few.

SPECIAL PLANNING BOARD 
TAX MAP REPCET 

In 1971 the New Hampshire legislature passed a law requiring all 
towns to complete a tax map by 1980. Two years have passed with no action 
having been taken by your Selectmen. 

This year, the Planning Board asked for and received permission frm 
the Board of Selectmen to begin a tax map. Consequently, we have entered 
into a seven year tax mapping program. 

Those of you who have worked with the School Board in attempting to 
locate desirable school sites; those of you who have worked with the Con- 
servation Commission in attempting to locate a dump site; those of you 
who have worked with the Police and Fire Departments in attempting to locate 
a police/fire station site; and those of you who have worked with the Water 
Study Committee in attempting to locate well sites appreciate the need 
for a tax map. Undoubtedly, businesses and industry seeking to locate 
in Pelham have also been frustrated by the lack of a Tax Map. 



53 



Such a map would show the size, shape, and location of every parcel 
of land in Pelham. Not only would it aid business, industry and committees 
in finding sites, it would assure fair and accurate tax assessments. We 
anticipate that the Tax Map will disclose hundreds of acres of Town-owned 
land. The Water Study Committee mapped 800 acres of land. 'In the process 
it discovered over 300 acres of town-owned land. 

The greatest benefit to be derived by Pelham from a tax map would be 
in the area of planning. Armed with a Tax Map, the Planning Board can 
create more accurate and meaningful zones for our zoning ordinance. The 
Planning Board can study proposed subdivisions in relationship to abutting 
properties. Without knowing the size and shape of an abutter's property, 
it is nearly impossible to plan for access to that property or to create 
street patterns that provide for economical and safe traffic conditions. 

If the Tax Map is started this year and completed over a seven year 
period, most of the cost will be borne by developers. It is our intention 
to gather all existing plans which have been financed by developers and map 
them first. As additional plans are submitted to the Planning Board, they 
will be transferred to the Tax Map by our civil engineers. This is the method 
utilized by the Town of Windham. In less than five years Windham was able 
to complete its Tax Map at a very modest cost 

The alternative is to employ an out of state tax mapping firm at an 
estimated cost of $40,000.00 or more than a dollar on the tax rate. We 
think that a seven year program is a better way to meet wthe state require- 
ment of a Tax Map by 1980. The seven year program is one that we can afford. 

To begin the Tax Map project, we have requested an appropriation of 
$3,000.00. We believe that the benefits to be derived fron c Tc'j< I'ap will 
be worth many times its cost.

WATER STUDY COMMITTEE REPORT 



It is not inappropriate to begin this report with a brief history 
of the Pelham Water Study Committee. Three years ago several of the 
undersigned members recognized that one of the main reasons that Pelham 
lacked business and industry was because Pelham did not have a Town water 
system. Consequently, they approached the Board of Selectmen who agreed 
to appoint a Water Study Committee to investigate the feasibility of 
a Town water system for Pelham. 

At the recommendation of the newly formed committee, special hearings 
were held at which representatives from the New Hampshire Department of 
Resources and Economic Development spoke of the need for town water to 
induce business and industry to locate in Pelham. Also, on the recommenda- 
tion of the Water Study Committee, a special town meeting was called to 
authorize the beginning of a water system. By State law a two-thirds 
vote was required. It was a difficult fight, waged almost exclusively by 
the Water Study Committee Members. However, the necessary two-thirds vote 
was obtained. 

Since then, the Water Committee retained a consulting engineer, negotiated 
land options, negotiated land acquisitions and conducted extensive well testing 
activities. 

During the past year the Water Study Committee continued its search 
for an adequate source of water to supply a town water system. This search 
was conducted in conjunction with Fenton Keyes Associates, the engineering 
firm which was commissioned by this Committee to conduct a full scale water 
study of Pelham. 

Our search has centered in the large area of meadows north of the 
Dracut line, east of Beaver Brook, south of Chagnon Lane and west of Pulpit 
Rock Road. Davis and Benoit, Inc., civil engineers and land surveyors from 
Londonderry, N.H. were employed to map the area. Over 800 acres were mapped. 
During the mapping we discovered over 300 acres of land that were not being 
taxed. The Town now holds tax deeds to most of this land. 

Our experience in mapping the wetlands led us to two very important 
conclusions. First, we have concluded that the wetlands should constitute a 
distinct and separate zone under our zoning ordinance. Due to periodic 
flooding, the wetlands are unfit for residential, commercial or industrial 
development. However, the wetlands appear to have great potential for locating 
wells for a town water system to serve homes, schools, business and industry. 
It is unquestionably an area that should be reserved for agriculture, forestry, 
fishing, wildlife, camping, swimming, canoeing and in the Winter, skimobiling. 
This area has over 13,000 feet of shoreline on Beaver Brook. 



55 



In order to protect this area, the Water Study Committee obtained from 
the Regional Planning Board wetland zoning provisions. They were redrafted 
to fit Pelham's needs and were presented jointly to the Pelham Planning 
Board by the Water Study Committee and the Conservation Commission. 

The second conclusion which we reached in mapping the wetlands was 
that Pelham is in great need of current high quality aerial photographs of 
the entire Town. Consequently, in conjunction with the Planning Board, 
we are recommending that a complete set of aerial photographs be taken this 
year. Prints will be made available to the Tax Assessors, Selectmen, the 
Road Agent, the Industrial Commission, the Conservation Commission, the 
Planning Board and our water study engineers, Fenton Keyes Associates. These 
photographs will also form the basis for our tax map. 

In addition to the photographing of the entire town, the Water Study 
Committee's activities for the coming year will include a continued search 
for a water source. Our activities will also involve the acquisition of 
land for a standpipe location. 

With this exception of $400.00, all of our previous appropriations 
have been spent on land options, land acquisitions, well testing and 
surveying or have been fully committed under a binding contract with Fenton 
Keyes Associates. The remaining $400.00 will be used to survey the standpipe 
location. 

We are requesting $3,000.00 appropriation this to pay for the aerial 
photographs of the entire town. Your support for this appropriation is 
requested.

AUDIT PROCEDURE 

The accounts and records of all town officials charged with the custody, 
receipt and disbursement of public funds were examined and audited in ac- 
cordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and accordingly included 
such tests of the accounting records and such other auditing procedures as 
were considered necessary in the circumstances. 

Verification of uncollected and unredeemed taxes was made by mailing 

notices to delinquent taxpayers as indicated by the Collector's records. 

The amounts of uncollected and unredeemed taxes as indicated in this report 

are therefore. subject to. any changes which may be necessitated by the re- 
turn of veriiication notice's. -o ^ 

GETJERAL COMMENTS 

Overdraft of Appropriations and Application of Municipal Budget Law : 

It is noted that there is a net overdraft of budgetary appropriation 
in the amount of $17,o29.48; that is, total expenditures exceeded total bud- 
getary appropriations by this amount in 1972. 

In accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Budget Law 
(R S A 32:10a) application was made to the Tax Commission by the Board of 
Selectmen, with the approval of the Budget Committee, to exceed budgetary 
appropriations. Certificates of Einergency, authorizing the excess expendi- 
ture in the following appropriations, were issued by the Tax Commission under 
dates of July 20, 1972 and January 10, 1973: 

Road Repairs $ 1,440.00 
Town Poor 2,000.00 

Winter Maintenance 20,000.00 

It is again suggested that requested appropriations in ensuing 
budgets for Winter Maintenance and Town Poor be scrutinized carefully, to the 
end that allocations will be sufficient to meet the needs of the Town.

Municipal Court : 

We commented in our last years audit report concerning the failure of 
the Clerk of the Municipal Court to reconcile the cash accounts on a regu- 
lar basis. Again, in 1972, some of the monies that had been deposited into 
the checking account maintained by the Clerk, had not been properly re- 
corded. 

The Clerk must record all monies received by him| covering fines, for- 
feitures, restitution, etc. as required, and reconcile these amounts to the 
bank statements on a monthly basis. Only in this way, can discrepancies 
that occur during the year, be detected and corrected on a current basis. 

Fire-Police Station Building Rind : 

In examining the vouchers paid by the Fire - Police Station Building 
Fund, we noted instances wherein expenditures were not properly substan- 
tiated. 

Also, for separate accounts of this type, we recommend the use of a 
columner cash journal to facilitate the proper classification of expendi- 
tures. 

Conclusion ; 

The provisions of Chapter 71, Section 27-a, require that the auditor's 
summary of findings and recommendations (letter of transmittal) shall be 
published in the next annual report of the Town. Publication of the Ex- 
hibits contained in this audit report is optional at the discretion of the 

Board of Selectmen. This letter, however, must be published in its entire- 
ty. 

We extend our thanks to the officials of the Town of Pelham for their 
assistance during the course of the audit. 

Yours very truly, 

Frederick E Laplante, Director 
DIVISION OF MUNICIPAL ACCOIMIING 
STATE TAX COMMISSION 



Note: The above mentioned Exhibits of this audit report was not 
received at the same time the above letter was, making it 
impossible to have them printed in this Town Report.

TO THE SCHOOL BOARD AND CITIZENS OF PELHAM 

The following paragraphs constitute my report as Superintendent of 
Schools for the School District of Pelham, New Hampshire. 

Few, if any, school districts in the State of New Hampshire or, in- 
deed, in the entire New England area, are undergoing the growth demands being 
experienced by the town of Pelham. These growth demands were evidenced in 
one instance with the opening of the new addition to the E. G. Sherburne 
School on November 13, 1972. Although we had hoped that the addition might 
be ready for the opening of school, construction problems forced a delay in 
our plans. The addition includes sixteen (16) teaching stations and an in- 
structional materials center along with several minor supportive areas. At 
this writing, we have just held Open House and things are proceeding satis- 
factorily due to the cooperation and commitment of the professional staff. 

At its annual "Awards Night", the New Hampshire Council for Better 
Schools recognized the E. G. Sherburne School for its innovative program 
entitled "Parental Education Toward Preparing Pre-schoolers for Entrance Into 
First Grade". This program was designed by Mr. Kelley and his staff to better 
prepare children to begin their formal school experience and to dovetail with 
the individualized program of instruction in effect in that building. Mr. 
Kelley and his staff are to be congratulated for their commitment toward 
improved and more effective education. 

Certainly the most signifi-cant project in the recent and possibly en- 
tire history of the Pelham School District is the design and construction of 
the new Pelham High School. At this writing, bids under the "construction 
management" technique have been received and will soon be awarded. Among 
the requests in the 1973-74 budget proposal are the monies for a high school 
principal to begin in July of 1973. In order to make every effort to make 



To the School Board and Citizens of Pelham Page 2 

the transition of the high school student body from Alvirne High School 
to the new Pelham High School, we will need the services of a full-time 
administrator to design a program of study and to help interview and hire 
the new staff. Liaison must be established and plans developed with var- 
ious supporting agencies such as the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic 
Association, New England Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, and 
the New Hampshire State Department of Education, to name but a few. The 
construction of a facility is but the first step in the very complex process 
of establishing a high school program to meet the varying needs of a dynamic 
and growing community such as Pelham. 

One of the paramount items in the annual budget continues to be profes- 
sional salaries. J This is as it should be, since the teacher "per se" is the 
heart and soul of the instructional program. Without teachers, there ceases 
to be an instructional program, and without good teachers there will not be 
good instruction regardless of the equipment, facilities or the supplies. 
Your serious consideration in this area will be most appreciated. 

In closing, I would like to thank the School Board, Mr. Kelley, Mr. 
Conte, and the entire school staff for their unfailing cooperation and the 
citizens of Pelham for their commitment to excellence in the total education- 
al program. 

Respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF THE 
ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

Mr. Peter G. Dolloff 
Superintendent of Schools 
Pelham, New Hampshire 

Dear Mr. Dolloff 

The image of the Pelham education system has changed drastically 
during the past year and changes toward improvement will continue. 

The Sherburne School, once a stepchild in the system, ha" flourished 
into a first rate complex physically and educationally. Mr. David Kelley 
has done a great job, along with his staff, in initiating programs that are 
individualized and has successfully integrated the new addition with the 
previous structure. I am pleased with the educational environment at Sher- 
burne. 

Mr. Anthony Conte has exercised leadership at Memorial School that 
is commendable. The staff has cooperated in program changes and has un- 
doubtedly improved the learning and teaching process. Our main concern is 
to help each student at his or her level of achievement. The learning ex- 
periences for all students in Pelham are definitely improving their total 
education. 

Mrs. Velma Houle, School Lunch Director, and her staff should be 
recognized for the efforts they have exerted during the hardships this 
year. They did a great job, and I'm sure the teachers, students and parents 
appreciate it. 

During the current year, we found it necessary to add or replace 
twenty teachers. The following is a list of the new personnel:

REPORT OF THE PRINCIPAL 

January, 1973 



Mr. Peter Dolloff 
Superintendent of Schools 
Pelham, New Hampshire 

Dear Mr. Dolloff: 

Education is an on going and ever changing process striving to better 
meet the needs of society's goals. To insure a meaningful and relevant ex- 
perience, then, requires constant appraisal, evaluation and change. 

We at Memorial School have set our objectives so as to provide students 
with the facilities to be self-long learners. Eclectic might best describe 
the educational attitude of the administration and staff to meet the challenge. 
This frame of reference allows for the emergence of a program that is unique 
and individualized. It selects those proven and effective aspects from dif- 
fering schools of thought; thus incorporating both traditional and progressive 
methodology to provide quality education. 

A major revision of the basic teaching unit has proven most productive. 
The POD, a team of teachers instructing pupils at the same grade level, has 
provided a more personalized student /teacher relationship. Each student has 
the benefit of the appraisal and understanding of four or five teachers work- 
ing as a unit. Typical departmental structure places greater emphases on 
content at the various grade levels. 

The development of a more comprehensive elective program has taken a 
major step while using existing personnel. Students can now enrich their 
educational experience in any one of the following areas; French, art, music, 
health and first aid, reading for enrichment, guidance class, library science 
and compulsory physical education. We are pleased with existing programs while 
realizing the need for vocational courses. Attempts of teachers to introduce 
home economics, mechanics and carpentry are just attempts - personnel and ma- 
terials are sorely needed to present even a minimal program. 

Pelham is fortunate in having the necessary resources in the areas of 
health, guidance, remedial reading and speech. Effective programs currently 
exist to help youngsters in need of the above services. 

Introduction of self-contained classes at the sixth and seventh grade 
level has proven so successful, we anticipate expanding the program into the 
eighth. Some students find the structured one class - one teacher environ- 
ment more conducive to their needs. Greater rapport is established and high 
priority is given to behavioral as well as academic objectives. Learning to 
be more independent, more self-reliant and more resourceful is given as much 
attention as are the 3 R's. Particularly with these students, the need for 
a vocation program is again most apparent. 



Report of the Principal Page 2 

Building organization and control have taken a great deal of admin- 
istrative time. This, however, was necessary to insure that the atmosphere 
necessary for optimal learning did in fact exist. Frequent POD meetings 
with the principal have minimized the need for all school faculty teacher 
meetings. Areas of particular concern have direct involvement of the re- 
spective team. Decisions, many times, are the result of mutual agreement 
and commitment. 

During the 1971-72 school year, Health Services included 338 pupil 
physical examinations by Dr. Vinod Tripathi; staff Tuberculin Testing, 56, 
pupil vision and hearing screening, heights and weights totaling 1,485; 
first aids, 1,222; parent, teacher, student and administrative conferences, 
894. 

The School's health service, in addition to these annual routine 
tasks, conducted classes in Dental Health with the assistance of Dr. Richard 
Buck, Orthodontist and chaired a Health Education Curriculum Committee which 
met bi-monthly to examine the possible introduction of a full scale health 
program in the Pelham Schools. 

Currently, health classes are being conducted on an elective basis 
with 140 students in grades 6-8 participating. The Lowell Red Cross Chap- 
ter has assisted these students by offering a pilot program in multi-media 
basic first aid. This endeavor is being met with much enthusiasm. Red 
Cross Certificates will be awarded to those students who successfully com- 
plete this course. Future plans for baby sitting and home nursing courses 
are now being made. 

The guidance department has been able to extend its service. With 
the addition of an elementary counselor, full time attention is available 
for Memorial School students. Counselors are able to consult with the 
newly hired Psychologist at the Greater Salem Mental Health Center. A more 
in depth and thorough evaluation can be made when the need should arise. 

Our standardized testing program changed in both time of administering 
and testing publisher. SRA - Science Research Associates - was used at the 
Union-wide level. Results will be used for diagnostic purposes and to help 
parents understand the patterns of strength and weakness of their children. 

The School Lunch Program, under the direction of Mrs. Velma Houle, 
continues to provide tempting and nutritious meals for the School District. 
With a staff of nine, a total of 110,346 meals were served. Traditional 
highlights in the lunch program were: Open House during National School 
Lunch Week, Thanksgiving Dinner, The Picnic in June and Dinner for the Super- 
visory Union Workshop. Many of the frequent school-associated meetings had 
refreshments provided by the kitchen staff. Our compliments and thanks for 
many delicious moments.

At this time, I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude 
to you, Mr. Dolloff, as well as to Mr. Frank Kaffel, Asst. Supt. of Schools, 
the Pelham School Board, and all those who have contributed to the success 



of the current school year. 



Very truly yours

REPORT OF THE PRINCIPAL 

January, 1973 



Mr. Peter Dolloff 
Superintendent of Schools 
Supervisory Union #27 
Pelham School District 
Pelham, New Hampshire 03076 

Dear Mr. Dolloff: 

The following is the annual report of the E. G. Sherburne School's 
education program for the period January 1, 1972 to January 1, 1973. 

The major portion of our efforts in the past year have been directed 
toward the acquisition of the philosophy , skills and plans for implementing 
an open concept educational program in 1972. 

On January 28, 1972, a workshop conducted by Dr. Anderson of Harvard 
University and Dr. Indrisano of Boston University was held in the techniques 
of individualized instruction. During the summer months, Dr. Sandberg 
Notre Dame College conducted a two-week program for Supervisory Union #27 in 
developing an open concept classroom. Pelham was represented by 25 teachers 
at this course. Throughout the year, visitations to other schools and in- 
service work at the school have continued at an ever-increasing pace. One 
result on the in-service work done by the teachers after school has been the 
establishment of language arts and mathematics curriculum on a Sort-A-Card 
system. This device will enable us to select individual instructional pro- 
grams for each student. Development of this tool is expected to be one of 
the most important aspects of our move to an open educational program. 

As in the previous year, volunteer aids are continuing to provide ad- 
ditional services for Pelham's children. Currently, there are nine persons 
assisting the teachers for two to five hours a week. Tutoring, supervising 
art projects, chaperoning trips and correcting papers are just a few of the 
tasks they handle routinely. This continued community interest has been of 
immense value to our school, and parents are continually urged to join our 
staff. 

During the past year, our Parents Pre-School Program was cited for a 
second-place award by the New Hampshire Council for Better Schools. This 
year's program is intended to continue the work of helping parents know more 
about their child's most important pre-school years and how to assess and 
work with difficulties they may arise as their child develops. We hope this 
year to establish a similar program in early spring which will reach the 
parents of two to six year old children. In citing the award, the New Hamp- 
shire Council for Better Schools praised the program for its imagination and 



Report of the Principal Page 2 



possible far-reaching effects on education. Much of this praise belongs to 
our school staff and the many community volunteers who helped us. The Parent 
Teacher Association, the League of Women Voters, local shops and community 
members stepped forward to make this program a true community effort. 

I am happy to report that many areas of concern mentioned in last 
year's report have been acted upon. 

The School District has adopted the SRA Diagnostic/Achievement 
Test to be administered in the Fall rather than the traditional 

Achievement Test. 

Mrs. Marie Brophy and Mrs. Betsey Lamie have joined our staff 
as guidance counselor and teacher aid respectively. 

The amount of in-service work which was required to implement an 
open program has generally been fulfilled. Our staff training 
has reached a very high level. In conversing with other admini- 
strators and educators, it is apparent that Pelham's commitment 
to an open educational program is quite strong. 

As of November 13, 1972, sixteen teachers and nearly 400 students 
moved into their new quarters in the E. G. Sherburne School Annex. The in- 
itial programs are apparently functioning well with few minor difficulties. 
Many visitors to the school have been impressed with its smoothness, particu- 
larly when you consider the long delay and over-crowded conditions we faced 
at the beginning of the school year. 

Starting in January, the programs being developed will take on added 
meaning with the adoption of our new curriculum outlined earlier. 

As in the past, I would like to recommend several areas that should 
be investigated for improvement to the E. G, Sherburne School during the 
1973-1974 school year. 

1. As mentioned last year, Open Concept Education and 
team teaching will require some amounts of release time for 
planning purposes. At the present time, sixteen teachers 

are giving up all of their release time for planning purposes. 

2. Additional personnel are needed; an assistant principal, 
a librarian and 'several teacher aids are needed. Our current 
enrollment is over 600 students and is expected to grow rapidly 
over the next several years. 

3. The original Sherburne building is receiving some 
renovations as a result of the available building fund. New 
lights, paint and a new general office area are now being 



Report of the Principal Page 3 



installed. However, the school badly needs repairs to the 
floors and entrance areas which should be refurbished. 

As we enter 1973, we are confident of our ability to make continued 
improvements for children attending the E. G. Sherburne School. Repairs are 
being made to the older school; the open concept annex is working well. It 
has been a particularly good year in the sense that our teacher-pupil ratio 
is excellent. Our largest class is 26 students. Such a ratio allows us to 
continue individualized programs more easily than with some of the more 
crowded conditions we had last year. 

In closing, I wish to thank you, Mr. Dolloff, Mr. Kaf f el , tne School 
Board and the people of Pelham for their generous support and cooperation. 
I wish to particularly thank the staff of the E. G. Sherburne School for 
their generous contribution of time and effort in behalf of the children of 
Pelham. 

Respectfully submitted.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE PELHAM SCHOOL BOARD 



Traditionally this annual message, prepared by the Chairman of the 
School Board, acknowledges the many dedicated people who have unselfishly 
assisted the School Board and the school staff with their respective re- 
sponsibilities, and outlines events which transpired within the school 
system. Although I recognize the value of these contributions, and I 
fully respect the need to communicate what is happening in the schools, I 
feel that necessity dictates that I speak directly to the issue of escala- 
ting school costs. 

After observing the proposed school budget, as printed in this report, 
you will notice that most line items vary to some extent over the previous 
year. Some items have increased or decreased while others have remained 
essentially the same. However, none have changed so drastically as the line 
item entitled "debt service". This item alone represents an increase of 
approximately two hundred thousand dollars over the preceding year. 

In order to fully understand this increase, we have to place school 
construction in Pelham in historical perspective. Our total school popula- 
tion has been increasing by approximately one hundred or more children each 
September for the past ten years. In September of 1967, we opened the orig- 
inal Pelham Memorial, designed as a Middle School, to house grades 5-8. In 
1969, we opened a 12 classroom addition to that building, already overcrowded, 
while the E. G. Sherburne School was at capacity. Last October, we opened 
a 16 classroom addition to the Sherburne School while plans were alraady being 
finalized for the new Pelham High School. Furthermore, discussion is already 
underway relative to the need for additional elementary facilities in the near 
future. 

Couple the cost of new construction with operating expenses, such as 
salaries, utilities, transportation and supplies, and the reasons for a rapid 
spiraling increase in the budget becomes evident. 

New programs have been implemented in recent years to enhance the 
educational program such as physical education, library, art, music, remedial 
reading and guidance. New materials and equipment have also been included. 
Understandably, all of these additions and changes contribute to an increased 
school budget; however, all are essential to obtain an educational environment 
that we feel our children need and deserve. 

Nevertheless, it is new construction that has created, by far, the 
largest portion of the total dollar increase. Such an increase will undoubt- 
edly create a financial burden to many families. Perhaps even an immediate 
relief would be too late to assist some homeowners who are faced with an 
almost insurmountable financial dilemma. There is no immediate panacea for 
this perilous financial condition we are presently experiencing. The School 
Board has made every attempt to limit the budget without effecting the educa- 
tional quality of programs we now possess and are striving to improve. Only 
suggestions that will improve, and those that are essential to our program, 
are being recommended for your approval. 



- 2 - 



Solutions to ease this situation are simple to suggest, but difficult 
to create. Basically, without some short and long range planning to curtail 
migration into Pelham and without additional financial assistance from sources 
within and outside our Town, only a gloomy picture can be projected for Pelham' s 
future. If you will examine the number of new homes recently built in Pelham 
and examine the revenue sheet in the school budget, a clear understanding of 
why the picture is gloomy becomes evident. 

If such controls and revenues are the solution, they usually originate 
with local town officials and representatives of our State and Federal Govern- 
ment. If you are concerned with seeking some type of financial relief, then 
your concern should be directed toward the responsible individuals. However, 
it should be understood that your local School Board has made all attempts to 
keep the proposed budget at a minimum without deteriorating educational quality. 

Respectfully yours.

INTERIM REPORT 
PELHAM HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING COMMITTEE 
January 20, 1973 



Your High School Building Committee, charged with the responsibility 
of advising the school Board in all matters relating to the proposed building, 
conducted an unprecedented thorough investigation and analysis of buildings, 
designs and designers. Seventeen architectural firms were chosen for con- 
sideration, three were selected as finalists, and the firm of Stoner Assoc- 
iates was recommended on the basis of acceptable past working relationships. 

During the investigation period, the Committee became aware of a bid- 
ding and building process used in private industry and government that has 
recently been successfully utilized in school building. "Managed Construc- 
tion" replaces the overall General Contractor with a Construction Manager 
employed by either the owner or the Architect. Bids are solicited from 
formerly designated subcontractors directly to the owner, in this case The 
Pelham School District. Savings as high as 287o of costs in standard proce- 
dure were reported. 

The Building Committee recommended that the School Board utilize the 
new procedure which was done. Twenty-five separate building related requests 
for bids were issued. An unheard of number of nearly 400 firms obtained plans 
and specifications with fiercely competitive bidding resulting which favored 
the school district immensley. 

Consequently, the School District is receiving a very acceptable 
building, equipped and designed for further expansion at an economical price

unmatched in recent years. With the proper intended follow-up during the 
construction stage, Pelham will be established as a leader in the State in 
the quest for good schools at a reasonable price with flexibility designed 
for the future. 

Respectfully for the Committee,

RECORD OF RECESSED SCHOOL DISTRICT MEETING 
Thursday, March 16, 1972 



The meeting was called to order by Moderator Edward Perkins at 7:40 
p.m. Donald Brock asked for special recognition for Fred Bischoff and James 
O'Hearn for their tireless efforts in behalf of the High School. He also 
recognized Philip Currier for his three years work on the School Board. Mr. 
Peter Dolloff was introduced and asked to explain the year-round high school 
plan which will be going into effect in Hudson. 

Budget Committee recommendations were approved with the following 
exceptions : 

Series 645 - Donald Brock amended the figure to $13,250 which was 
passed in the affirmative. 

Series 690 - the $56 recommended by the School Board was passed in 

the affirmative. 

Series 850.5 - Article 8 - Passed in the affirmative in the amount 

of $2,487. 

Series 1100 - Donald Brock amended the figure to $596 which was 
passed in the affirmative. 

Series 1265 - $15,000 was deleted because high school bond issue was 

approved. 

Series 1371 and 1371A were amended to $54,380 and $62,500 respectively. 

Series 1477.3 - The merits of having our own Supervisory Union were 
discussed. Mr. Brock revealed the Board has requested the superintendent to 
take formal action to remove Pelham from the union by 1974. A consensus of 
the assembly resulted in 88 for and 19 against having our own union. $22,913 
was approved for our share in union expenses. 

Rep. John Richardson made the following resolution: 

1. To direct the School Board to appoint a commission of volunteers 
whole aim it shall be to conduct an accurate census of all those children 
in Pelham who are in any way handicapped physically or mentally so as to 
merit consideration for special educational services. 

2. To charge said commission with the responsibility of reporting its 
findings to the School Board before school year 1972-73. 

3. To request $2,403 be paid to Ernest L. Herrman School, Lowell, 
Mass. this academic year 1971-72, and to allow for the full payment of tuition 
costs for the Pelham student now attending said school for academic year 1972- 
73, this latter appropriation cancelled in the event such special education 

is deemed unnecessary by the school and/or parents. 



RECORD OF THE ANNUAL SCHOOL DISTRICT MEETING 
Wednesday, March 15, 1972 



The annual meeting of the Pelham School District was called to order 
by Moderator Edward Perkins at 7:35 p.m. at the Memorial School. Reverend 
Robert Robb gave the invocation and Mr. Perkins led the assembly in the 
Pledge of Allegiance to our Flag. Present on stage were School Board Chair- 
man Donald Brock, Grace O'Hearn, new member Philip Labranch, former member 
Philip Currier, Assistant Superintendent Frank Kaffel, Atty. Lewis F. Soule 
and Clerk Dorothy Hill. Budget Committee chairman Marianne Thompson and 
other budget committee members were also in front to present budget committee 
recommendations. 

Article I - Philip Currier reviewed the progress of the High School 
Committees. The High School Study Committee recommended that Pelham build a 
high school of its own since meetings with Windham and other towns revealed 
they were not ready to enter into a co-operative high school. The Site Com- 
mittee has narrowed its alternatives down to three sites. The Building Com- 
mittee has narrowed a field of 17 prospective architects down to three. The 
Curriculum Committee has the curriculum ready and approved by the State De- 
partment of Education. Following a question and answer period, Donald Brock 
made the following motion, second by John Lavallee: 

I move that the District vote to design, construct and equip a new High 
School and to acquire a site by whatever means necessary for said school; that 
the School Board is authorized to borrow $2,500,000 for the aforesaid purposes 
under the Municipal Finance Act to finance the same and to contract for and 
accept grants of Federal Aid and to expend such grants and any income derived 
from the temporary investment of bond proceeds to the project in addition to 
the foregoing appropriation, and to take any other action necessary to carry 
out the project. 

An amendment by James Powers to require the School Board to hold a spe- 
cial School District meeting to inform the people of the site, type of building 
and curriculum with final decision to be made by the body was defeated. Mr. 
Brock stated the Board intends to accomplish the same by setting up several 
hearings before final decisions are made. 

On a secret ballot vote, using the checklist, the motion was passed in 
the affirmative (163 - 46). Polls were open from 8:55 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. 

Series 100 thru 500 - Budget Committee recommendations were accepted 
with the following exception: 

Series 535 - Rep. John Richardson amended the figure to $102,600 to 
provide transportation for special pupils. Passed in the affirmative. 

A motion to recess meeting until March 16, 1972 was carried. 

Meeting adjourned at 11:15 p.m.

Respectfully submitted.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING FORM 

SECTION I — APPROPRIATIONS. Enter the budget as approved by the Tax Commission under the 
columns headed Budget 1972-73 Enter all regular and special appropriations including special ap- 
propriations to be financed by bonds, notes and withdrawals from capital reserve funds in the column 
headed Budget 1973-74. Offsetting items for the latter items are to be made in SECTION II — REV- 
ENUES AND CREDITS. Deficit or Supplemental Approprigtions are to be entered in the space provided. 
A deficit appropriation is made in the case where there there are insufficient revenues available or an- 
ticipated prior to the close of the school year from which the appropriations as voted may be financed 
and will require an additional tax levy. A supplemental appropriation is made in the case where excess 
general fund revenues are available or anticipated before the end of the school year from which the ap- 
propriations may be financed and will not require additional funds to be raised by taxation. In the case 
of a "supplemental" appropriation offset the amount in SECTION II by writing in "offset to supplemental 
appropriation" on the blank line immediately following the caption Other Revenue from Local Sources. 
The total appropriations actually voted by the school district meeting to be raised by taxation, cannot 
exceed by ten percent (10%) the total appropriation as recommended by the Budget Committee, less 
amounts to be raised by bond and long term notes issued and withdrawals from capital reserve funds. 

CONTINGENCY FUND (RSA 198:4b) Every school district annually by an article in the warrant and the 
governing body of a city upon recommendation of the school board, when the operating of the schools 
is by a department of the city, may establish a contingency fund to meet the cost of unanticipated ex- 
penses that may arise during the year. Such fund shall not exceed one per cent of the amount ap- 
propriated for school purposes, exclusive of capital expenditures and amortization of debt, during the 
preceding year. A detailed report of all expenditures from the contingency fund shall be made annually 
by the school board and published with their report. 

SECTION n — ESTIMATED REVENUES AND CREDITS. Enter in Column 1, Budget 1972-73, the revenues 
and credits as revised and approved by the Tax Commission in setting the 1972-73 school assessment. 
Enter in Column 2 the best estimate of 1973-74 revenue available at the time of preparation of the 
budget. 

DISTRICT ASSESSMENT. Items submitted without recommendations by the Budget Committee (Column 
4, page 2) are not to be included in arriving at the district assessment. If any of the items submitted 
without recommendation are voted they will be accounted for in the report of vote to be submitted by 
the school district clerk following the annual meeting. 

The district assessment from towns and cities is obtained by deducting the total school revenues and 
credits from the total amount actually voted (Column 3, Section I). Balance report by adding the total 
revenues and credits to the district assessment.
